Wow! Well, I'd say spend the first 2 hours visiting, then say, "Well, forgive me but I've got tons to do so enjoy yourselves and I'm around if you need me for anything." The show must go on, right?

Enjoy your fire and cool temperatures. Put your feet up when you can!

Yeah, I never had any trouble doing chores when they lived here Just seems rude when they come to "visit".

Hope you can stay out of the rain as much as possible. It's sunny and low 40's here...just like I like it !

Don't work too hard.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas !

I stayed on plan and ate very little the last 2 days. We had a good get together Christmas Eve at our house - everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I was glad we decided to keep it "low Key"
Went to DS1 and DIL's yesterday for Christmas day...... everyone ( except us ) brought their dogs..... lots of people.....supposed to eat at 5 , ate at 8pm. DS2 almost got bit by DIL"s mother's dog. ;/ Kids were so excited and bouncing off the walls as all kids do on Christmas day Lots of drama and chaos

It turned out really nice later, once all that was over, but I was stressed out. They fried fish, shrimp,clams,... stuffed flounder,stuffed clams, had homemade crab cakes, grilled redfish,scallops etc....... went to so much trouble. I just had grilled fish, scallops,and cole slaw.

So tired today and so glad all the "festivities" are over. DH's step mom left today to go visit friends and will be back sometime tomorrow evening. So, I'm planning on us eating leftovers and resting today. I'm pooped....

You did a great job of describing the chaos that goes on with large family gatherings! Glad it went so well.

ha ha, it does get chaotic, especially with lots of people, lots of dogs and lots of sleepy, excited children!! But, it is what makes the holidays memorable I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I enjoyed your story, too. Even more because I didn't have to experience it! A 3-hour dinner delay is substantial by anyone's standards. Dog city! I'm glad you enjoyed the day, regardless of the ups and downs.

Yep, lol ! It was something else....

I taped Dr. Oz ( who I don't normally watch ) - the author of Grain Brain was on there and talking about carbs and alzheimer's disease.

I'm going to kick back and watch it ! I never finished the book , I have it right here by my chair.....need to do that too.

Boy, I still feel tired, even after resting all day yesterday..... wow !

Taking down all the decorations today. Took down all the ornaments, then the tree tilted like it would fall over. lol ! Will wait for DH to get back home before I take the lights off ~~ don't need it to fall over !

This was the nicest cute little tree....but it is really dry and dying now or I would leave it up a few more days. I will miss the "homey" feel of the tree. I leave it plugged in at night cause when I wake up and roll over I always glance into the living room and see the lights. I just love them.

kind of rainy and cool today. Did a little Pilates ( and felt sore while I did it ) so I know it's been way too long .... need to get back into doing it for a few minutes daily !

What are you all doing today ?

I'm sorry the tree is breaking down and you can't leave it up longer. I love the lights of Christmas, too. Makes me wonder why we only use them at Christmastime. We can get rid of all the other decorations and still keep a string or two of lights over key doorways or something like that. I think I might do that once I snag a few sets on sale. If I wait much longer, everything's going to be picked over.

I hope you find some rest somewhere. You're surely run-down from all the holiday festivities. It wears people down to the nub sometimes.

Did rest most of the day. DH grilled steaks for supper and I cooked brussel sprouts with bacon and onions. They had baked potatoes too.

DH's stepmom will stay until Sunday now she says. She loved supper

We watched a DVD of Johnny Carson for about 3 hours. It was hilarious ! Really enjoyed that....... we have 2 more ~ we will have to watch them soon !

Hope you all had a good day !

You look really beautiful, Laura - love your new avatar. And you are 136 pounds -- that is super skinny and super awesome! So happy for you. I want to get that DVD of Johnny Carson -- I love him and miss his show. Your dinner sounds delicious -- I love good home cooked low carb meals and grilled steak is just the best.

Glad you'll have more good times with your step-MIL. I love the old Johnny Carson stuff too. If any of you have Netflix, there is a Johnny Carson "best of" that you can stream. I haven't seen it yet but it's got to be really good. A good laugh keeps you going!

Have a great day, Laura.

DH wants fried quail tonight ~ so will make some potatoes and gravy for them I guess. Just popped into Lisa's blog and saw those meatballs... yummy.. that's what I'll make me

Cloudy and 50's here. Puppy sitting again.

Hope you all have a great Saturday ! Will be checking in on y'all in a bit !!
